Calculate the potential time savings for your nursing staff

Did you know that healthcare professionals across all roles spend a significant portion of their workweek on repetitive, non-essential tasks like clinical documentation and vital signs monitoring instead of actual patient care?

Ever wondered how much time your nurses spend on non-essential tasks?

Spoiler alert: It’s a lot. 

Tasks like documentation, vital signs monitoring, and weight recording consume a significant portion of the time that should be dedicated to patient care.

Research conducted in several hospital wards in Germany shows that if you have 10 beds in your ward, the nursing staff spend as much as 31 hours and 35 minutes on vitals acquisition, weight recording and documentation.

That is 31 hours and 35 minutes not spent on patient care.

The calculations are based on pilot projects from German hospitals and based on the following routines:

  • Typical vitals are recorded once per shift (2 shifts/day) - taking 8 minutes/patient
  • Weight is measured once per day - taking 4 minutes/patient
  • Weight is also measured upon admission - taking 5 minutes/patient
  • Mobility is documented once per shift - taking 3 minutes/patient

What others are saying

At Schrobenhausen Hospital in Germany, the nursing staff dedicates over 15 hours daily to gathering vital patient data, recording weights, and documenting mobility.

With a capacity of 34 beds, these are 15 hours that could be better spent on patient care instead of collecting vital parameters.
